division of power, obama and the white house, democrats in control of the senate and republicans in the house. but appearances can be deceiving and in this case they are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama, almost like the parliamentary party, was not rewarding and taking the debt ceiling hostage was not rewarded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reported. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition, so i think that was an important change that creates a new dynamic, not that it's going to solve our problems. there's going to be no sitting around the camp liar and washington making nice to one another, but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> two familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norm ornstein.

true. the republicans have given up their role as their primary negotiators in this. to this point, they are trying work out a smaller bill, and president obama, you can tell, he is holding out hope that it can work. >> nobody can get 100% of what they want. and this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. call me a hopeless optimist? i still think we can get it done. >> and i think, don, that with congress going home, the president's other option was to stay in washington while no one was there. we saw some of the vacation last year disrupted for the president's late departure, so there was that desire to come out here. but i also think that some at the white house think that allowing congress to go home may also allow them to get somewhat of an earful from their constituents that they need to get something done in what really has become the last ditch effort to deal, at least with the tax hikes as part of this, they are not able at this point, and they are kicking the can down the road on dealing with the bigger issues. >> all right, in

democratic president and a republican house of representatives. i happen to believe that creates an opportunity. i did not vote for barack obama, but i do believe that having a president in one party and a house in another party does create an opportunity for us to work together in a bipartisan way. we know if my party won everything, it would have been tough for us. it is a political attack that would be taking place from the other side of the aisle. working together, i believe we can tackle this issue. that is really what we desire. that is the right thing to do. we are in the midst of a very tough negotiations taking place between two people. the president, and the speaker of the house of representatives, john boehner. i want to express my appreciation of my colleagues. i have been a minority. i have served in the minority from 1980 to 1994. it is challenging. it is not easy. we are a 11 days away from going over the fiscal cliff and we feel strongly about the need for this institution to state its position on this. i know we have heard mr. reed indicate he does not want to bring

where you don't really hide. >> it seems to me the question is, republicans say, we can't give on taxes until you reduce spending. democrats are saying, but you reduce spending until the go on taxes. if i agreed to raise taxes, i don't believe mr. obama is going to cut spending. if we don't raise taxes, you get your way. >> and i think mayor brown is absolutely right. those are positions that they take relative to their constituents. it's all about getting compromised. it's all about what it is that we can still be able to walk up and say, i've got something for you. >> let me tell you, you can solve the problems they are facing by what we call the trigger. that is that if in the first quarter x number of dollars to come in, cuts go. quickly. however, if x number of dollars to come in, taxes go differently. so you can clearly have trigger devices. >> absolutely. >> it's still a few hours. >> they cannot make everybody were in the meantime. if you are worried about getting around this weekend, you are going to have some issues. >> their drive for the first cap. kind of watching the next

. republicans need to stick to their guns and not be a tax increase and party and time for president obama to compromise, lest we forget, elected to give them control of the house of representatives which is to say we want you to hold the line on taxes. >> alisyn: what is the next move? you've studied this. what do you predict in the next week? which side is going to do something and what? >> my prediction would be that basically, both sides essentially stand down and say, okay, let's extend this until 2013. let's maintain the status quo and then let's get back after the new year and negotiate this then, but it's important the republicans not give in now. they don't-- that's not fair to the voters who put them back in to basically protect the economy and if you want to hurt the economy, the quickest way to do it is to raise taxes on the most productive. >> alisyn: john, you're the editor of real clear markets.com. we'll see what happens if your prediction comes true, sounds like a good one. >> fingers crossed. >> alisyn: startling new numbers show that teenagers don't think that marijuana

republicans not just on this issue but on several issues down the road and essentially john boehner was right with bran b. we needed to pass that because we need leverage on president obama because president obama is not offering a balanced approach. he is talking about cutting spending but not talking about preserving medicare and social security which is 6 6 to 62 tof the federal budget. they need to use the debt ceiling limit to preserve medicare and social security. i think we will eventually reach an agreement here. >> but doug, i don't believe -- i don't think that is entirely fair. the president put on the table things that many people in his party don't like. he put on the cpi on social security and agreed to some where around $400 billion in medicare cuts. he but entitlements on o the table in big, big numbers. john boehner was the guy who said a week ago we got to have a trillion in revenues and a trillion in cuts. that was the basic frame work for the deal. so then the decision in terms of where the tax rates would go up, whether it was 250 a year or 500 a year or what that t
